Plot *minor spoilers ahead*

This show follows a group of 3 friends (Kang Dong Gu, Lee Joon Ki and Bong Du Sik) who have dreams to become a director, writer and a famous actor. They started a guest house to raise funds to pursue these dreams but several years later, all they have is a pile of debt. One day, the guys find a baby in the house and can't get themselves to take the baby to the police in hopes the mother will come back for her...and she does in the most unexpected of ways. The mother ends up living with the guys as she has nowhere to go and Dong Gu falls for her, although she initially refuses his feelings. Joon Ki falls for Dong Gu's sister and has to hide their relationship out of fear of Dong Gu's reaction and Dong Gu's ex ends up moving in to the house because she encounters some trouble of her own. This show follows the lives of the 6 housemates and the shenanigans they get into.

My Feelings

I really enjoyed this show. I wasn't sure what to expect but this show had me laughing out loud from the first to the last episode. It is also the first K drama I've watched that has more of a sitcom feel as opposed to a movie broken into episodes (if you get what I mean). There was no buildup towards something specific, it was just a new story per episode. Now, I am not really into just comedies, I need something with it, however, if comedies are your thing, then I recommend this 100%.

This show was very funny, quite silly at times but they did not take themselves too seriously so you couldn't hold it against them. Joon Ki was a bit over the top in my opinion but you discover that is actually his personality, so again, you can't hold it against the writer. They added some cute romance in there and the staple love triangle, but they flowed seamlessly into the story as a whole so it worked out quite nicely.


If you are looking for something silly and funny with absolutely no drama or seriousness, go ahead and watch this. It's completely enjoyable, doesn't drag on and there are no ridiculous plot lines or big reveals. I laughed out loud several times and thoroughly enjoyed the humor, plus it had the cutest baby ever!
